Beepo Clark celebrates 2nd year, contributes P133-M in local economy

Jun 02, 2016

CLARK FREEPORT— On its 2nd year of operations, one of the leading Australian-owned business process outsourcing firm inside this Freeport already contributed ₱133 million to the local economy since its inception.

The Clark-based offshoring firm Beepo also now have more than 220 employees since it started operations in 2014 here.

The amount stated was in the form of salaries and taxes. Beepo CEO Aimee Engelmann, an Australian entrepreneur and with the help of her ‘locally grown’ management team, has developed a state-of-the-art facility and skills-rich workforce that delivers premium BPO services to 70 clients not only in Australia, but also in New Zealand, United Kingdom, Hong Kong and United States.

Engelmann said she saw the potential of providing a premium offshoring services to Western countries from the Philippines when she visited the country in 2013 prompting her to decide that the country will be her next business destination.

“I came to the Philippines looking for staff to help me with my previous business, and was blown away by just how much highend talent there was in the country that wasn’t being accessed. I knew straight away I had to build a resourcing firm to nurture that talent, to export it to the world,” she said.

Engelmann said that in the country’s human capital has only grown stronger since that time which drives Beepo’s progressive approach to its training, development, and workplace culture.

“To fill that niche, to provide that premium service to our customers, we recruit talented people whose hearts are in the job, who really have a sense of purpose. That’s why we work very hard on creating a fun, positive environment and maintaining a healthy work/life balance – we want people who want to be their best selves,” the lady CEO added.

This philosophy is nowhere more evident than in the development programs that Beepo continues to provide for its staff. In the first two years of operation their Clark Headquarters delivered close to ₱1 Million worth of training through their Australian training consultants, Engelmann furthered.

As well as undertaking programs such as leadership training and inbound marketing training, staff have also received training from their clients, with some heading overseas to learn about client businesses. In the last two years Beepo’s Clark facility has been visited by 70 clients to deliver training to the employees of the BPO firm here.

Because the clients confidence, Beepo has become g the workplace of choice for talented professionals in the BPO industry. A quick survey of workers across the industry reveals that Beepo is perceived as an ‘elite’ employer, and jobs with the company are highly desired, she said.

She said that Beepo is more than a call center, because there are other employees who are either accountants, bookkeepers, marketers and Web developers working on a diverse range of projects.

Given the trailblazing success of Beepo’s first two years in operation, Engelmann said there will be plenty more opportunities for the country’s top talent to join their ranks.

“We’ve hired and trained the best English-speaking, tertiary-educated talent in the Philippines and as a result the company is really growing. We’re set to reach 700 employees in the next year, and are forecast to reach 5000 strong in 5 years,” Engelmann said.
